llinois officially became the poster child for wrongful convictions when former Governor George Ryan emptied death row in 2003. The "demon of error" that haunted the state's court system would not have been brought to light, however, if not for Northwestern University journalism professor David Protess, the director of the school's Center on Wrongful Convictions, Robert Warden, and their diligent students. Tonight, Warden is joined by two of the exonerated and one of the accusers for a roundtable discussion on the repercussions of being wrongfully accused and its effects on the legal system.
